I really like the functionality of switching focus between left and right tab groups, but find myself also wanting to move the current tab to the other tab group quite often. Unfortunately, there is no command to this. I suspect this would be quite easy to implement and would help people who want to stay on the keyboard as much as possible
Implement Move current tab to tab group on the right
Implement Move current tab to tab group on the left
I had a look at that, but I believe panes are different from tab groups? I am not entirely sure on the nomenclature used.
Crucially this shouldn’t be a new tab group, but one that is already open - perhaps except in the case where it is already the rightmost/leftmost tab group, which case it could create a new tab group? Similarly if moving a tab out of a tab group results in that tab group being empty, it should be closed
Unless I’m mistaken there’s a precedent in IDEs for moving the current tab to the existing group to the left/right/below/above, if a tab group already exists, and to create a new tab group if a tab group doesn’t exist there yet.
But I haven’t seen any implementation of “create a new tab group no matter what”.
I’m only stating this because this design is more common and is my preferred “middle way”
Thanks. The reason I submitted my original FR was because the introduction of tab groups was (and still is) giving me all sorts of usability problems. I want to be able to guarantee opening a note in a new pane (i.e. its own new tab group), rather than having it be forced into an existing tab group. As I pointed out in the FR, we can already do this if we want to move a tab to a new window (something I would never want to do, incidentally), so why can’t we also do so in a new pane (i.e. tab group)?
